In this group of countries, the performances of the United States are striking, as are, to a lesser extent, those of Germany, Austria and Sweden. Only for Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom are the average growth rates of per capita income 1 per cent or lower during these years. As was the case for New Zealand, Australia’s low per capita growth rate was the result of heavy immigration and high rate of growth of population between 1870 and 1913.
